IPD appointed as distributor for ABB electrification products

IPD has been appointed ABB's distributor of electrification products for the 415v switchboard manufacturer channel. IPD will also provide ABB low voltage power distribution solutions to major electrical contractors. All other channels will continue to be serviced directly by ABB.

"ABB designs, manufactures and supports some of the best electrical switchgear and control equipment available, with core strengths in medium to large end-to-end electrical solutions," commented Michael Sainsbury, CEO, IPD.

"IPD's partnership with ABB will open the business to new opportunities, allowing IPD to strengthen its offering for low voltage power distribution and motor control solutions.

"IPD has been a long-term supplier of GE Industrial Solution products and with ABB's acquisition of GE Industrial Solutions in 2017, IPD can offer an expanded product offering and support ABB's customer base."

IPD will distribute ABB electrification products from July 2019. ABB and IPD will be contacting all ABB 415v switchgear customers to discuss future steps. IPD will continue to stock and support the extensive GE product portfolio.
